Lesson 2 Question Upload Images   Link   Email

I have spent days trying to figure out why the INVOICE TOTAL only loads on my PaymentF (linked by button on OrderF) some of the time. I have discovered, when I click in OrderDetail (Subform of OrderF BEFORE clicking the Payment Button (on OrderF), the PaymentF INVOICE TOTAL loads correctly.

Is there a way in the code to fix this? I'll post images as well.

Thank you!

Try adding a Me.Refresh to the button code before the command to open PaymentF.

After adding me.refresh to button VBA: Clicking button opens form with $0 - Invoice Total
After clicking to enter a payment amount the Invoice Total appears - until I move to payment method and Invoice Total is $0 again.

The payment form has:

On Current, After Update,

The OrderF will actually populate the correct amount paid and due.

How did you get the amount in the Invoice Total Text Box on the Payment Form?
In the Control Source, is it something similar to this:

I've gotten to the point that it will populate the Invoice Total while Payment detail recored is Dirty, but after update the value goes back to zero.

The form is refreshed AfterUpdate, FormCurrent,

Can you post a screenshot of the Payment form in Design View?

Invoice Total Control Source =[Forms]![OrderF]![OrderDetailF].[Form]![GrandTotal]
Total Payments Control Source =Sum([PaymentAmount])
Amount Due Control Source =[InvoiceTotal]-[PaymentTotal]

The code checks and refreshes the OrderF multiple times. Will this disengage the OrderDetailF which is a subform of OrderF. I feel like the problem lies in the refresh code.

Or...should I create a Query with PaymentT and OrderDetailT for the control source of PaymentF.  Maybe it's just too much calculations going on? On the OrderDetailF, the GrandTotal control source = =([SubTotal]+[TotalServiceCharge]+[TotalServiceChargeTax]+[TotalSalesTax]+[TotalAlcoholTax])

Really shouldn't make a difference as the GrandTotal has already been calculated when you click the button - but certainly give the query a try. Sometimes you have to go with whatever solution works best.

I've been trying to replicate your issue and so far, nothing I've tried has made the field behave that way. Guess it's a lot harder to break it when you actually want to. LOL

I basically cut out all the coded refreshing. The Invoice Total calculates when I enter a Payment Amount and everything from there calculates and performs as expected so I think I'll take this as good enough! Thank you for your responses :)
